Triveni Sangam at T.Narasipur or Tirumakudalu Narsipura, Mysore

35 Kms from Mysore is the town Panchayat of T . Narsipura, a place famous for Triveni sangam.
The place at the confluence is known as Trimakudalu Narsipura.
This  place is very serene and made divine by the  confluence of Kabni, Kaveri and Spatika  [Spatika- is actually is a mythical spring also known as Gupta Gamini ] Many come here to offer worship.
Every three years Kumbhamela takes place here and  thousands converge here for having a dip  in the sacred waters.
There are temples of Siva and Vishnu on the banks of the river and on left it is Gunja Narasimha temple which I visited.This holy town takes its name from the Lord Narasimha here .Shall post soon about the Narasimha temple.
The mode of transport are coracles and for a small fee they transport pilgrims to the spot of sangamam. Check pictures for coracles.

This seems a Southern version of Trivenisangamam.Are coracles the only mode of transport? It reminds of circular boats called 'parisal' used for crossing Aganda Cauvery where the river is very broad.I wish to visit this holy place during my next visit to Mysore.Thanks for the write up and the pictures.
